The Board considered approval of a request for a Temporary Business Use Permit from Coal Creek Farms, L.L.C. to host "Wild West Days" on April 26, 2003. The property is located at 1676 N 1000 Road, Lawrence, KS, and consists of 174 acres.  Keith Dabney, Director of Zoning & Codes, was present for the discussion. Dabney explained that "Wild West Days" will feature the Santa Fe Desperados (re-enactors) who will perform two Wild West shows. There will be horse/feed vendors, open trails for riding, hayrides, a bonfire lunch, horse rides for kids and cakewalks. The event is scheduled to occur from 10:00 A.M. until 5:00 P.M. Dabney noted that the applicant has provided proof of insurance and meets all requirements per notified departments. Dabney recommended approval of the permit. The Board discussed the impact a possible burn ban might have and directed staff to notify the applicants of this possibility. Johnson then noted that Douglas County should be identified as a holder on the Certificate of Insurance. McElhaney made a motion to approve the Temporary Business Use Permit for Coal Creek Farms, L.L.C., to host "Wild West Days" on April 26, 2003, with the condition that Douglas County be identified as a holder on the Certificate of Insurance. Motion was seconded by Jones, and carried unanimously.

McElhaney moved for adjournment; Jones seconded and the motion carried unanimously.
